Solid-organ transplantation has become an increasingly important therapeutic modality for patients with various end-stage diseases. Despite improved immunosuppression protocols, most transplant recipients face a variety of complications. Early posttransplant infection and rejection are the major causes of morbidity and mortality. Drug toxicity, chronic rejection, and malignancies are long-term complications.
